Dragon Ball once again handily came in as the company’s best-performing franchise for the half-year, pulling in ¥61.3 billion (a jump over last year’s ¥58.6 billion in the same time period); Dragon Ball beat out the number-two franchise, Mobile Suit Gundam, by about ¥23 billion. The company is holding on its projection of ¥115 billion for full fiscal year 2020, which would be slightly down from last year’s ¥129 billion.

In terms of general toys and hobby merchandise (non-video games), the franchise also jumped from ¥9.9 billion for the first half of 2019 to ¥11.6 billion this year’s first-half, with a similarly-held-projection for the full year at ¥20 billion.
